Going for the gold
The main sign for the Hazelnut Inn is almost done. It’s looking very nice! The leave now sport a beautiful rust patina, the tree and background are painted and as a last step the lettering is receiving a shiny coat of real 23k gold leaf. Becke gave Alyssa a quick lesson in applying the size and laying the leaf and then she got to play with the gold for the day. The top letters in the picture are finished with gold while the bottom letters only have a base coat of gold paint. There’s nothing like real gold!
